Re: [linux-dell-laptops] It won't start?
- you might try typing
linux 1 at the
that way you should avoid most of th driver startup

then edit /etc/lilo.conf and add an
using /dev/hda1 (like in the example)
No idea how to fix the eth0 problem but maybe that's
not it... have a look in /var/log/dmesg to see if
something else is going wrong.
Oh - if you eth0 is pcmcia try leaving that out for
maybe try disabling eth0 in the bios if it is
